Renewable energy and Energy efficiency
CEA Tech institute Liten is working to improve battery lifespans and performance for stationary and mobile energy storage solutions.
The institute conducts testing in real-world conditions and aging tests to gain a deeper understanding of the mechanisms that underpin battery degradation. The goal is to determine the best management strategy for the type of use. The institute also conducts research to determine reliable battery-health indicators.
Liten researchers are helping develop new generations of batteries, like very-low-cost sodium-ion batteries (sodium is abundantly available) and lithium-sulfur batteries, which offer three times the lifespan of lithium-ion batteries of equivalent mass. Liten researchers have already made great strides toward improving the performance and extending the lifespans of these batteries of the future.
ALL TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS
A new hybrid polymer electrolyte technology with the capacity to enhance battery safety was developed for Solvay. The company has begun presenting the new technology to battery manufacturers.
The MUSES numerical simulation platform is used primarily to study the behavior of fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries at different scales to provide deeper insights into how they work.
Liten, a CEA Tech institute, presented its digital tools for dimensioning and managing energy storage solutions at the ANCRE press conference on February 7, 2018. Liten’s solutions facilitate the integration of renewable energy into island grids.
Bubendorff, based in France’s Alsace region, launched a revolutionary new roller shutter, the ID2 Autonome, in 2012...
Leti and Liten, both CEA Tech institutes, developed the electronics and algorithms required to measure the internal temperature of a battery cell by estimating electrical impedance. The purpose of the solution is to detect the early signs of thermal runaway in embedded lithium-ion batteries.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
